Nasa and SpaceX have announced a 24-hour weather delay of their planned launch of four astronauts into orbit for America’s first fully fledged human mission using a privately owned spacecraft.

Axar.az informs that the liftoff time slipped from Saturday to Sunday evening due to forecasts of gusty, onshore winds over Florida – remnants of storm Eta – that would have jeopardised a return landing for the Falcon 9 rocket’s reusable booster stage, Nasa officials said.

The Crew Dragon capsule, dubbed Resilience by its crew, was rescheduled for launch at 7.27pm on Sunday from Nasa’s Kennedy space centre in Cape Canaveral.
